this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scien

, joe biden stepped into join former president clinton on stage. both men fired up over a new ad by the romney campaign claiming that automaker jeep is planning to send american jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american operations. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the i

clinton where vice president joe biden stood in for him. >> folks, i know you're expecting the real president, the present president, reverend, i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. [ cheers and applause ] and first and foremost on behalf of the president, i want to thank all the first responders throughout this country. you know, there are folks from all over america heading to my part of the world to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. if there are
the obama campaign, vice president joe biden and president clinton will still be at that campaign event. so the president has that event in florida, then he goats baes o the white house. this is really happening in realtime right now. instead of events being planned out days in advance, now it's sort of as each hour goes by, things are changing. that's why it's going to pay to keep a close eye on this storm and on the campaign schedule, don. >> well, you can see, thank you, jim, you can see the people there are still excited even with the storm coming in marion, ohio, where there's a romney event and our jim acosta is on board. thank you, jim. i just want to sort of reiterate what jim said. come behind me if you can show this. i want to show our viewers. this is how we do it, right? to the right here on this side, this is my rundown so i sort of know what's going on and i kind of go by that wherever it takes me. on this side, these are the advisory wires. this advisory wire is saying what jim is saying. president obama has -- let's move down here. president obama declared a state of emergen
, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think a big potential here for president obama in this very, very close race. >> senator lincoln, it's interesti
their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and t
a campaign event today into a rereef event, their surrogates have been out there, ann romney, joe biden, michelle obama, bill clinton. their campaigns have continued to run advertising. we've seen solicitations for contributions not to the obama campaign but to the red cross from that massive email list that barack obama has. the campaigns were up and running. they're still doing all the things they normally do. there's a little more sensitivity in the states that are affected by the hurricane but they can't really afford to pull out, to push the pause button. >> ifill: democrats have been saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which is not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions as possible. so he's getting hit for that right now. what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organization? there's about $7 billion in the bank right now. if mitt romney and republicans were in control

lead. michigan is dead even. they're sending bill clinton to minnesota, joe biden to pennsylvania. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e. there could be a surprise state like pennsylvania or illinois. >> sean: good to see you, ann coulter. when we come back, we continue to track the monster storm sandy. over a million and a half people are out of power and new york is being flooded. lower manhattan and the new york governor's office is reporting storm-related deaths. we have a live report coming up next, and then later, this storm is interrupting the political world, but we continue to focus on the benghazi coverup. tonight in studio

president joe biden were dispatched, not just to key swing states, but to democratic-leaning minnesota and pennsylvania, to respond to a last-minute push by the romney campaign. >> in the real world, barack obama's policies work better. >> reporter: the best news for the obama campaign in our new quinnipiac/cbs news/"the new york times" poll is that the president maintains a five-point lead in ohio, his firewall. he mostly has that lead, norah, because of a 17-point lead in the state among women, while governor romney leads among men but by a smaller six points. >> nancy cordes, thank you. let's bring in chief washington correspondent and host of "face the nation," bob schieffer. bob, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> so, how do you read the latest polls? >> well, it's very, very close. but you know, i've got to tell you, charlie, i'm with governor christie on one thing, it is very difficult to think about these polls right now when you look at the pictures that we've just been seeing, this devastation. the interesting thing in this poll is that governor romney seems to be mov
sending bill clinton and joe biden, to minnesota and michigan all thought to be in the blue-state column in this election, because he's trying to head fake us or he has a legitimate shot of winning those election tore kwral rich states. >> part of the reason is that there is so gosh darn much money in this year's election neither candidate is abiding by the old limits on spending and the money is out there so both candidates have deep pockets in their campaign, they say, let's take a try here, let's take a try here. it's very telling where the gambit is taking place, it's not on the red turf it's on the blue turf. it's in blue wall streets, pennsylvania, minnesota, those are places that democrats don't want to be worried about. particularly interesting is michigan which has been a bulwark of the democratic party as important to them as any other state where you see the race essentially tied. megyn: i want to talk to you about michigan. this has been thought to be blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, and it's got 16 electoral votes, chris. i mean if he -- if romney won michigan he wouldn't have

, but romney and obama can't say those things. >> i agree. clinton is going to be who he is. joe biden can't go out there and do it, he's the acting, now current vice-president, but bill clinton can play the fear game. this problem is the institutional left. they are looking at an election swinging tornadwards romney. charles: bill clinton is considered. >> considered a moderate. he only did what he had to do in office, to stay in office. 's he a political animal and his policies are more left than people call it as a moderate. charles: we'll leave it there for now. new at ten, it turns out stuart may be right. if the bipartisan battle ground poll shows that mitt romney could pull off a victory next week, at the top of the hour we'll tell you exactly how much of the vote he could get. and also right now, let's go to sandra smith, she's at the cme in chicago, and sandra there's actually trading going on today and of course we're following oil and gold and gas closely because of the refineries, shut down due to the hurricane. all of this, what are you hearing? >> from the energy department. crude
's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others, they believe there's a possibility to at a minimum keep the president on the -- having to not just focus on ohio. and if they can distract him away from ohio to play defense in these other places, they can increase their chances. the democrats totally dismiss this, but there's a reality. they're playing defense. >> you can say dismissive, but mike barnicle, the fact that democrats would put their key asset, bill clinton -- >> in pennsylvania. >> in minnesota today, two stops in minnesota today, that's -- that's worrisome for the democrats. >> yeah. if you -- if you're taking one of your principal assets, the president and the vice president frozen now, the key asset not only your principal asset, your key asset, but one really
